Dr. Bledsoe obtained his Ph.D. in clinical psychology with specialized training in pediatric neuropsychology from Michigan State University in 2012. Following graduate school, he completed his psychology residency and two-year post-doctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at the University of Washington School of Medicine and Seattle Children's Hospital. He then joined the University of Washington faculty as an assistant professor/pediatric neuropsychologist in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at UW. He also served as the Director of Psychology Post-Doctoral Fellowships at Seattle Children's Hospital and was the training coordinator for the University of Washington Psychology Internship Child Track from 2017-2020.
Dr. Bledsoe's clinical and research interest is in neurodevelopmental disorders, neuropsychological assessment, pediatric heart disease and cancer, traumatic brain injury, structural and functional neuroimaging, and statistical modeling of neurocognitive development. He has published over 20 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts, 10 book chapters and 32 national talks on pediatric neuropsychology. He also serves on the editorial board for several scientific journals.
While his training has taken him to Michigan and Washington, Dr. Bledsoe was born and raised in Oregon and is excited to be back. He is thrilled to join the excellent providers in the St. Charles PEDAL clinic and continue providing clinical care to children and adolescents in central Oregon.
